The Observatory - Santa Ana
It’s high time that Against Me! finally descend upon our fair territory. The thrilling punk quartet are one of the few truly visible mainstream rock groups that wear their politics on their collective black sleeve, both in their lyrics and in practice, from making donations to ACLU and other social justice causes to being vocal advocates of gender and trans issues in music. Before they make their headlining appearance at Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas later this month, enjoy a somewhat intimate performance from the band; while we imagine this show will be packed from wall to wall, it’ll be as hell raisingly-fun as you’d expect.
